Car mystery beep

    This one is starting to drive me crazy. 2012 Nissan Armada with all the bells and whistles. Im getting random beep beep beep pause 3 times for a total of 9 beeps from the back of the car where you hear the liftgate chimes. Heres where it gets weird. It does this every once in a while when I open the driver door getting into the car, and also randomly when Im driving down the road. Theres no indicators up front about doors being open or liftgate being ajar when it happens. It beeps exactly 9 times and then stops on its own.

    Any ideas?

    Make sure all of your doors/hatches are firmly closed.
    Check to see if you have any seatbelts partially snapped

    You could also have a short somewhere that is
    draining the battery. You'd probably need to
    put it on a code reader for something like that.

    Ive got a code reader that does a lot of the fancy nissan features. Just dont know what to look for.

    I recently was digging thru the FSM trying to get the liftgate fixed so I was looking at the volume dealing with the module in that same corner that would be driving the speaker but didnt see anything about my beep sequence.

    Ill try exercising all the seatbelts n see if that helps

    Maybe a blockage/proximity warning? If something is too close or possibly blocking the opening/closing of the hatch, or doors. Or maybe a weak fob battery warning you. I dunno, it's all I got. Ski

    If there isnt a notice on your dash/gauges, then it could be a friend picking on you they make these little beeper things to hide with different pulse patterns.

    Any chance someone could have placed one in the back?

    LOL one of my mechanics got me and Dalt and Lane (the video guy) driving up 65 looking for a fucking cricket.

    Aight I just browsed all the FSM stuff for this. All of the seat belt and door open chimes go thru a different control box & speaker in the front of the car. This speaker is only for the power liftgate.

    So either my back door control unit is on its way out or the power or ground wires going into it are on the fritz.

    Next up: take it to the dealer or mechanic or just shotgun it and replace the bdcu module

    Maybe unhook this module and see if it beeps this pattern when power is re-applied to it. This could show if a bad connection somewhere is causing it to occasionally re-boot and beep.

    Or it's a Nissan...so push it off a cliff and buy a Chevy or a Toyota. Nissan is the Yugo of Japanese car makers.

    Think back long ago to the 1970s when you bought a freezer that buzzed like a electric chair and you could pass it down to your grandkids.

    I never knew saving the environment could generate so much income.

    Jesus, now the fucking radio is going to break now you’ve mentioned it.

    Which means @Dave Wolfe is going to have to sing to himself while he drives.

    Which means there’s about to be a drive-by shooting in Cedar Falls…

    It will be a mercy killing.

    Cedar Rapids! Get it straight bubba

    On the plus side my persistent CEL finally went away. Its had a slow evap leak as long as Ive had it. The jack handle lug nut wrench it turns out is supposed to be in the gun storage compartment under the floor and not wedged in front of the jack where the fuel filler and its vent hoses live. Go figure it musta been resting on an evap hose of some kind.
